01.) "REVELATION" 2015 HITnRUN Phase Two.
Revelation was streamed in part during the Yahoo! Live album release party for Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum by Joshua Welton from his Macbook Pro in Paisley Park Studios (Studio C), Chanhassen, MN, USA (along with The X's Face and the Rita Ora version of Ain't About 2 Stop).

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in Summer 2014 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

In December 2015 the song appeared as eleventh track on the album Hitnrun Phase Two.


02.) "JUNE" 2015 HITnRUN Phase One.
June is the eleventh and final track on Prince's 38th album Hitnrun Phase One.

While specific recording dates are not known, a BBC interview with Joshua Welton seemed to confirm that Hardrocklover and June were recorded on the same day in late June 2015, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. When discussing Hardrocklover, Welton is quoted as saying: Hardrocklover was done literally almost as soon as it came out. Actually, that and the last song on the album were made literally in the same hour.

In the lyrics, Prince states "[I] sometimes feel like I was born much too late; should have been born on the Woodstock stage." Prince was born in 1958, however, and was 11 years old at the time of the era-defining Woodstock Festival.


03.) "WAY BACK HOME" ft Paloma Ayana 2014 Art Official Age.
Way Back Home is the tenth track (ninth song) on Prince's 37th album Art Official Age.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in Spring or Summer 2014 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. British folk/soul singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas, who appears as the narrator during the opening of the track, gave an interview in late February 2014, in which she stated she had not yet recorded with Prince but would love to, indicating that the track had not yet been recorded. La Havas appeared live with Prince in March and July 2014, and it is possible they worked together on the track then (along with Clouds, Affirmation I & II and Affirmation III), but this is purely speculative.


04.) "TICTACTOE" 2014 Plectrumelectrum.
Tictactoe is the tenth track on Prince's 36th album Plectrumelectrum (the first by Prince and 3rdEyeGirl).

It is likely the track was recorded in February 2014. The magazine quotes Prince describing the recording of the track: “We recorded it in Bryan Ferry’s studio Studio One in London, after a night of partying for which the Cocteau Twins was the soundtrack. You can’t understand the words of Cocteau Twins songs but their harmonies put you in a dreamlike state.” It was first mentioned in an interview with Mojo Magazine released in February 2014, describing the track as an "ethereal new ballad".

The title refers to the traditional two-player paper and pencil game Tic-tac-toe.


05.) "SEA OF EVERYTHING" 2010 20TEN.
Sea Of Everything is the eighth track from Prince's 35th album 20TEN.

Initial tracking dates are uncertain, but it is believed that the track was recorded in early 2010 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


06.) "BETTER WITH TIME" 2009 MPLSound.
Better With Time is the seventh track on Prince's 34th studio album MPLSound.

Recording dates and studio are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2008 - early 2009 at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA or 77 Beverly Park, Hollywood, CA, USA. According to an interview with Prince conducted by Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times, the song was dedicated to actress Kristin Scott Thomas, who played Mary Sharon in Under The Cherry Moon.


07.) "U'RE GONNA C ME" 2009 MPLSound.
U're Gonna C Me is the second track on Prince's 25th album One Nite Alone..., but four months before the album's release, on 17 January 2002, the track was released as an mp3 as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 12, the final edition of the first year of the NPG Music Club. In 2009, a re-recorded version of the track was included as the fourth track on Prince's 34th album MPLSound, and, nine months after the album's release, U're Gonna C Me was available as a promo single in France.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is believed that initial tracking took place in Spring 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (along with the rest of the One Nite Alone... album), during the mastering of The Rainbow Children album. It is likely that the MPLSound version of the track was recorded in 2008 - early 2009 at either Paisley Park Studios or 77 Beverly Park, Hollywood, CA, USA, but this has not been confirmed.


08.) "77 BEVERLY PARK" 2009 Lotusflow3r.
77 Beverly Park is the eighth track on Prince's 33rd studio album Lotusflow3r.

Recording dates are unknown, but the track was likely recorded at 77 Beverly Park, Hollywood, CA, USA, Prince's home and home studio from early 2008 until mid-2009. The track's echoed beginning is most likely the end of the recording of the album's previous track, Love Like Jazz, for which recording details are listed in its respective song entry.

77 Beverly Park is mentioned in a rap included in Ol' Skool Company, along with most track titles from the MPLSound album, indicating that it may have been intended for inclusion on that album before being added to Lotusflow3r, but this has not been verified.


09.) "SOMEWHERE HERE ON THE EARTH" 2007 Planet Earth.
Somewhere Here On Earth is the third track from Prince's 32nd album Planet Earth, and a week prior to the album's initial release (with the Mail on Sunday newspaper in the UK and Ireland) it was included as the b-side of Guitar, the first single from the album, in Europe.

Initial tracking dates are uncertain, but it is believed that the track was recorded in early March 2007 at 3121 at The Rio in Las Vegas, as the track was premiered with Christian Scott on 10 March 2007 (am) as an instrumental and 11 March 2007 (am) as the full vocal track.


10.) "REFLECTION" 2004 Musicology.
Reflection is the twelfth and final track on Prince's 28th album Musicology, but ten months prior to the album's initial release (in concerts and as a download), Reflection was offered as an mp3 download to members of the NPG Music Club, during the club's third year, after being streamed during the club's opening week. In April 2004, a video of the performance by Prince and Wendy Melvoin of this track on The Tavis Smiley Show (their first performance together in many years) was made available for download through the NPG Music Club.

Initial recording dates for the studio version are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in early 2003. No recording studio information is given, but it is likely that the track was recorded at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


11.) "ON THE COUCH" 2004 Musicology.
On The Couch is the tenth track on Prince's 28th studio album Musicology, and, five weeks after the album's download release, it was included as the b-side of Musicology, the album's first single.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2003 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


12.) "CALL MY NAME" 2004 Musicology.
Call My Name is the fifth track on Prince's 28th studio album Musicology, and in July 2004, Call My Name was released as a promo-only single in North America. On 13 February 2005, the track won the Grammy Award for "Best Male R&B Vocal Performance", beating Charlene by Anthony Hamilton, Happy People by R.Kelly, What We Do Here by Brian McKnight, and Burn by Usher.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2003 - early 2004 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


13.) "ONE NITE ALONE" 2002 One Nite Alone...
One Nite Alone... is the first track on Prince's 25th album One Nite Alone..., but four months before the album's release, on 17 January 2002, the track was released as an mp3 as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 12, the final edition of the first year of the NPG Music Club. Later in 2002, a short live version was included as the fifth track on the second disc of Prince's first live album One Nite Alone... Live! (along with recordings of Free, Starfish & Coffee and Sometimes It Snows In April from the same show).

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is believed that initial tracking took place in Spring 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (along with the rest of the One Nite Alone... album), during the mastering of The Rainbow Children album. The song's title was the inspiration for the name of the One Nite Alone... Tour which took place in 2002.


14.) "LAST DECEMBER" 2001 The Rainbow Children.
Last December is the 14th and final credited track on Prince's 24th album The Rainbow Children, his first album after reverting to the name Prince; an uncredited reprise of the track is included as the 21st and final track on the album, following six uncredited silent tracks. In late 2001, Last December was available as a promotional single in Japan only, with no commercial release.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place in late 2000 or early 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

One of the four albums mentioned in the One Nite Alone... Tour program as being available soon from the NPG Music Club was titled Last December. As the track had already been released on The Rainbow Children and Prince had not performed the track live at that point, the content of this album was unknown.


15.) "MELLOW" 2001 The Rainbow Children.
Mellow is the seventh track on Prince's 24th album The Rainbow Children, his first album after reverting to the name Prince, and, on 14 January 2002, the track was offered as a free download from AOL.com to AOL members. In 2002, a live version was included as the fifth track on the first disc of Prince's first live album One Nite Alone... Live! (along with Muse 2 The Pharaoh, The Other Side Of The Pillow and Strange Relationship from the same show).

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place in late 2000 or early 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. Horn overdubs were recorded on 8 February 2001, also at Paisley Park Studios (on the same day as horn overdubs on Everywhere and The Everlasting Now). Lyrics in the track refer to the 17 November 2000 (am) aftershow concert at Metro, Chicago, IL, USA, which featured Macy Gray and Common as guests on stage. The songs' lyrics also refer to "The Egg", a building on the Paisley Park Studios grounds with an unknown purpose (see Paisley Park Studios for more details).


16.)"DIGITAL GARDEN" 2001 The Rainbow Children.
Digital Garden is the third track on Prince's 24th album The Rainbow Children, his first album after reverting to the name Prince. In late 2001, it was also included as the fourth and final track on the She Loves Me 4 Me "Jazz Sampler" promo CD available only in the USA.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place in late 2000 or early 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

The musical track transforms into a segue that continues the narrative of the album. "The Banished Ones" take over the world, except for the palace of the "Rainbow Children", which they surround with a "digital garden"; they try to remove "The Wise One" (king of the Rainbow Children) from power. The Wise One eventually "obliged with an invisible deed", and The Banished Ones return to the place they were born, "Menda City" (a play on words of "mendacity"). The Rainbow Children are then "willing to go door-to-door in search of those willing to do the work" of dismantling the digital garden. The segue then leads directly into The Work Pt. 1.


17.) "EYE LOVE U, BUT EYE DON'T TRUST U ANYMORE" 1999 Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic.
Eye Love U, But Eye Don’t Trust U Anymore is the 13th track (eleventh song) on Prince's 23rd album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic (his sixth using the name O(+> ). In 2001, it was included as the tenth track on the companion album Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic.

Initial tracking dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded in Spring 1999 during sessions for the album; independent singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco recorded her guitar part at Paisley Park Studios following her concert in Minneapolis on 3 June 1999 (during the same session Maceo Parker recorded his saxophone part for Prettyman). Prince returned the favor to DiFranco by playing guitar on her track Providence.


18.) "EXTRAORDINARY" 1999 The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale.
Extraordinary is the tenth and final track on Prince's 22nd album The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale. Two weeks prior to the album's release, Extraordinary was released as a promo-only single in the USA, but no commercial release was planned. Soon afterwards, it was included as the second and final track on a Japanese promo-only single of The Rest Of My Life. In 2002, a live version of the track was included as the fourth track on the first disc of Prince's first live album One Nite Alone... Live! (along with Xenophobia, Avalanche, Family Name, Raspberry Beret, The Everlasting Now, Eye Wanna B Ur Lover, Diamonds & Pearls, The Beautiful Ones, Nothing Compares 2 U and How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore from the same show).

While specific recording dates are unknown, basic tracks were recorded in September 1992 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions that produced Down, Holly Don't Care, The P, The Halls Of Desire, Paris 1798430, Uncle Sam, Super Hero and a remake of Shhh). The song was originally intended for Rosie Gaines' planned solo album Concrete Jungle, and she recorded vocals for the track, although Prince reclaimed the track before the known configurations of Concrete Jungle were compiled in 1993.


19.) "SHE SPOKE 2 ME" 1999 The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale.
She Spoke 2 Me was first available as the first track on the movie soundtrack album Girl 6 (a compilation of music by Prince and associated artists for the movie Girl 6, directed by Spike Lee), and was later released in extended form as the third track on Prince's 22nd album The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in October 1991 at Paisley Park Studios (during sessions for the O(+>  album). The full version (used on The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale) was edited for inclusion on Girl 6.
